Yang Song is an architectural student and a multidisciplinary designer who has been working for a number of years across projects that converge architecture design, augmented reality, digital fabrication and immersive design. He has an M-Arch Degree in Architecture from the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London (UCL). He is working in CAVA, University of Liverpool (UOL) on a practice-based research project for the Doctoral Degree in Augmented Reality and Robotic Fabrication.
After experiencing the Covid-19 pandemic, remote communication became one of the key issues in almost every field and discourse. Digital fabrication is no exception, and architects hope to seek a user-friendly way for human-machine interactions. This paper presents experimental research using Augmented Reality (AR) for robotic remote programming. T...
This design-led research investigates the development of a file-to-fabrication framework for mortar-free robotic assembly of masonry walls. In particular, we describe, test and evaluate an algorithmic method enabling the robotic assembly of custom-made, complex, interlocking brick structures which don't require the use of mortar or adhesives but th...
The Augmented Bricklayer research project proposes a new augmented human-robot collaboration method for the robotic assembly of masonry structures. It aims to resolve the conventional limitations of the robotic bricklaying process by incorporating object recognition and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies. Towards this aim, we present a human-robot...
The Augmented Masonry Design project presents experimental research about developing and applying Augmented Reality (AR) technology for customized design algorithms, exploring a real-time, interactive, and spatial-free design method for the early architectural design stage. We aim to resolve the current 2D-based design limitations and provide archi...
The Augmented Bricks research project aims to develop an immersive design to fabrication framework for the assembly of masonry building components by incorporating robotic fabrication and augmented reality (AR) technologies. Our method incorporates two main phases: firstly, the design phase in which users' gestures and interactions are being identi...
The use of Augmented Reality (AR) technologies has increased recently, due to the equipment update and the mature technology. For architectural design, especially in digital fabrication projects, more designers begin to integrate AR methods to achieve the visualization in the process. To help unskilled labors for holographic on-site previewing and...
This research project, entitled AR Digi-Component, tries to digitalize the traditional architectural components and combines Augmented Reality (AR) technologies to explore new possibilities for architectural design and assembly. AR technology and Digitalize components will help to achieve a real-time immersive design and an AR-assisted robotic fabr...
Augmented Reality (AR) as a new technical tool has developed rapidly in the last few years and has now the potential of bridging the gap between holographic drawings and the real world. This paper addresses whether AR can guide unskilled labour on complex structure assembly and fabrication process. It contains three experiments developed with AR. T...
We are developing a design-to-fabrication framework for the robotic fabrication of mortar-free masonry structures.
